Perl: Activeperl: Only 62 perl exe's allowed to run at a time?
Posted on 2006-06-15
Is there a limit of how many perl exes can run on a winXP system at one time?
EXE's are compiled with perl parser (PP)
I have been able to load 62 at once but can't seem to get beyond it. Is there a memory limit? Can I change whatever limit is keeping me from doing what I need?
If I try and open a perl exe beyond the 62 or so, it simply closes without cycling. I also noticed when all the 62 programs are running I can't click -> Start menu -> RUN to run the commandline interface - not that I need to do that when it's running though...
I'm threading data through various streams and would LIKE about 1000 exe's running at one time (they don't take much processing power or memory). Actually make that 1002, 1000 "thread" exe's, 1 control program, and one loader.
There is another way I can do it, but it would mean 17 computers that I don't have. =D
Any help would be VERY MUCH appreciated!!
Thank you very much.
